Rollsigns from Collingwood, ON
Collingwood Transit had been contracted to Penetang-Midland Coach Lines of
Penetanguishine, Ontario since it's creation. In 2000, the system adopted the name
"COLLTRANS" for its service. After PMCL dissolved, service in the city was taken over
by Sinton Transportation in 2011. Since their takeover, Sinton also initiated a service that
connects Wasaga Beach to Collingwood, jointly funded by the two cities and Simcoe County.
This mylar front route rollsign is off OBI 01.501 Orion I
#8501. Its print date is September 6, 1985. This sign was
removed after the bus was retired and sold to a private
company, making it the one and only rollsign to occupy this
bus while it operated for Collingwood Transit. It has 18
exposures.
The image of this sign was drawn virtually perfect to scale.
Its sign tag is shown below.
Collingwood Transit #8501 is shown westbound on Simcoe
Street at Hurontario Street at the downtown Collingwood,
Ontario terminal and transfer point. The sign you see above the
windshield is the same sign represented by the image here.
